W Studios bio picture

Welcome to the W Studios Blog!

Welcome to our blog! He's John, and I'm Anne. We are married, but we are also best friends. We love taking photographs, cooking, and gardening. We have two very fuzzy and quirky cats, Whiskey and Martini.

Justin and Jesus

Justin and Jesus are two of our dearest friends in Waco, Texas. When Justin told me that, even after being together nearly ten years, they had never had professional photos, I said we were going to fix that. We took their Holiday Photos on the Baylor Campus, where they met, and at Dichotomy Coffee and Spirits in Waco, Texas. Love these two.

Paula & Her Boys

Paula, Justin, and Jack are one of the most fun families we have the privilege of being friends with. They are all gorgeous, charming, and brilliant. Paula’s pride for her boys shines, and they adore her. Talk about a family with great genes.

Kieschnick Family 2015

We spent the day after Thanksgiving with our darling friends, the Kieschnicks. We plan our holidays to include at least one full day with them – they are our family, too. I love watching our families grow together.

The Stiles November 2015

Not only have we photographed the Stiles Family from their Engagement session to portraits of their Family of Four, they are some of our very best friends. Becky and I text, talk, and e-mail almost every day. She’s such a source of strength and inspiration. She’s brilliant and honest and beautiful. Equally, Matt is rock of strength and warmth. We love getting our boys together for play dates. I hope they’ll grow to share our friendship.

Adam and Rebecca

Adam is my twin, and Rebecca is his amazing fiancee. John photographed their engagement portraits in Austin, Texas this summer. We cannot wait to be there with them as they dedicate themselves to each other forever in April. Forever Photography in Austin, Texas will be photographing the wedding. Check them out – their work is gorgeous.

Lahrman Family November 2014

Our friends, the Lahrmans drove up to visit us in our new home in Waco, so they joined our family for portraits at the Carleen Bright Arboretum. Talk about a family full of smiles.

Ries Family November 2014

My brother and his gorgeous family came to Waco this Halloween to trick-or-treat with us in our new neighborhood. The next morning, we stopped by the Carleen Bright Arboretum for family photos. It was a crisp family morning – perfect for exploring the gardens.

Jewel and Andy

We met Jewel and Andy at our church orientation at Bethany Lutheran Church in Austin, Texas. We liked them right away, and of course I said yes when they asked us to photograph their wedding this July. We’ve since moved to Waco, but they’ll always be a part of our church family. They were married at Bethany, and their reception was in Lakeway, Texas.

April and Mark

My darling friend April got married this May in our hometown, Beeville. We became friends in High School, and we have stayed close ever since. She and her family live in LA, but they wanted to celebrate their marriage where April grew up. She and Mark chose the High Five Ranch to celebrate the big day. We were so blessed they asked us to document their day.

Christine and Federico

I love weddings where we feel like guests as much as the photographers. At Christine and Federico’s wedding, we felt like family. That’s because I have known Christine for almost 10 years – she’s my BFFL Megan’s little sister. Needless to say, we were completely thrilled when she asked us to be there on her wedding day. We got to meet Fred that day, and he is a complete sweetheart. He was so warm and welcoming. Their ceremony and reception was at the elegant Bell Tower on 34th in Houston. We had a wonderful time celebrating with Christine and Fred.
